  • poll: How many people didn't RSVP? What did you do?

    Less than 5% didn't RSVP

    About 10% didn't RSVP

    About 20% didn't RSVP

    More than 20% didn't RSVP

    FI and I called all the slackers

    We gave some of the slacker list to our parents to call and we called the rest

    We just gambled and assumed those that didn't RSVP weren't coming-nobody called anybody

    We had some people not RSVP.  Some of them we knew they weren’t coming.  I would call anyone you haven’t heard from a few days after the date.

    less than 5% didn’t rsvp, which was nice. (well, nice in the fact that it could have easily been a much bigger number!)

    We’re date twins!  We plan on calling or emailing all the people that haven’t RSVPed by the RSVP date.

    2 days before the RSVP deadline, 50% of our guests hadn’t RSVPed. We sent some friendly reminder messages to people on the deadline date and our parents called their friends and siblings. For those people we didn’t hear back from after that, we called/emailed and let them know unless we heard from them differently by Friday, we’d mark them down as not attending. Most people did follow up with us, but a few just never responded at all.

    I wish I’d set our RSVP deadline a little earlier (it was 20 days before the wedding and most of our numbers, seating chart, etc. were needed ASAP even though the contracts stated things should be in 10 days before). Soooo glad to be done with that step of the wedding planning.
